Some new Area 51 documents from the Cold War Era have been declassified telling a tale of high-tech ′hide and seek′. Many dated from the 1960s through 70s show the great lengths the CIA and military went through to confound the Soviet Union. The government routinely photographed the Groom Lake facility using assets such as U-2 spy planes, our first spy satellite – the CORONA, and even pictures taken by astronauts on board the old Skylab space station. These photographs aided Area 51 officials to improve camouflage and other means of deception. Other items have also been declassified, such as a cool picture of a row of A-12 ′Oxcart′ spy planes, the forerunners to the SR-71. Some wonder if the photo, taken in 1964, was set-up as a harmless ′beauty shot′ or was it intended to confuse the Soviets?
